Life in Miami on the Knife’s Edge of Climate Change | The New Yorker

When a hurricane approaches, the air tingles. The sea does strange things. In minutes, the sky can turn from azure blue to slate gray. Turbulence comes out of nowhere. You can picture what follows, and many photographers do, but you will find no images of catastrophe in Anastasia Samoylova’s “FloodZone.” She is looking for other things, the subtler signs of what awaits the populations that cluster along shorelines. What is it to live day by day on a climatic knife’s edge? What psychological state does it demand? Hurricanes are sudden and violent; sea-level rise is insidious and creeping. The low-level dread of slow change, and the shock of sudden extremes. Climate and weather.

W. Eugene Smith: Father of the Photo Essay

William Eugene Smith has been described as “perhaps the single most important American photographer in the development of the editorial photo essay.” He shot photo projects so large that they cannot be displayed in any museum. Let’s take a closer look at this brilliant photographer.

Juxtapoz Magazine – Radio Juxtapoz Podcast, ep 20: Ed and Deanna Templeton on What Makes the Tokyo Streets So Magical

A few weeks back, Radio Juxtapoz traveled to Tokyo, Japan for the RVCA World Tour, a 7-day takeover of the city that saw numerous art shows, signings, screenings, pop-ups occur in and around Shibuya. Obviously, our focus was the Beautiful Losers: Now & Then show, and it gave us a chance to talk with two of our favorite photographers: the talented and influential Ed and Deanna Templeton. Ed Templeton has been blazed across our memories as a legendary skater who was able to take his skate craft and create fine art and photography that has made him famous the world over. Deanna Templeton has been making these incredibly poetic projects for years, with her The Swimming Pool coming to mind first and foremost.

There Won’t Be Blood: Gun Violence and Visual Censorship – Reading The Pictures

To show or not to show? When does publishing photos of carnage become exploitative, gratuitous and pornographic, and when does it become critical information and a prompt for change?

Your Post Goes Against Our Community Guidelines: An Algorithmic Rewriting of History | Conscientious Photography Magazine

Imagine my surprise when after posting a photograph from the Abu Ghraib archives next to a recent one of Donald Trump on Instagram I was informed by the site that the post had been removed because it went against “Community Guidelines.” A little further down, the notification gave a more specific reason, which is worth quoting in full: “Post removed for violence or dangerous organizations”.

Boris Lojkine on Late Photographer: ‘I Felt Very Close’ to ‘Camille’ – Variety

It was only after Lepage’s death that her story caught the attention of French filmmaker Boris Lojkine, whose sophomore narrative feature, “Camille,” will have its world premiere on the Piazza Grande during the Locarno Film Festival. Starring Nina Meurisse and based on extensive research with Lepage’s family, friends and colleagues, the film is both a moving coming-of-age story about a young photographer finding her artistic voice and a thoughtful exploration of the ethical challenges faced by war photographers in foreign lands.

Say Cheese: Ransomware-ing a DSLR Camera – Check Point Research

Our research shows how an attacker in close proximity (WiFi), or an attacker who already hijacked our PC (USB), can also propagate to and infect our beloved cameras with malware. Imagine how would you respond if attackers inject ransomware into both your computer and the camera, causing them to hold all of your pictures hostage unless you pay ransom.

B: Q & A with Bryan Formhals

That’s definitely true. Creation is only half the battle, distribution is the other half. Media companies have full teams dedicated to just monitoring the data and then boosting on social media. There’s definitely been a shift in how brands and media companies approach social media. A lot of them have created Audience Development departments that focus on growing audiences across different platforms.

The after image – Thoughts of a Bohemian

We are far past the few daily images we saw who were either made to inform or to communicate a brand message. Images that either reflected an existing or depicted a yearned reality. Today, it’s a blur between the two. And only when a photograph challenges our beliefs do we questioned them. Otherwise, it is all the same: An endless flow of unrelated content where images of real violence are jumbled with vacation landscapes and occasional reminders. Photos of our presidents are mixed with those of our cousins, handbags or miracle gadgets, images of floods and devastation appear before ( or after) cute cats, more handbags and some street demonstrations. An endless scroll of content that leaves us unfulfilled enough to keep us scrolling down, endlessly, expecting one will act as a period, making us stop and put down our phones. But that image never appears.
